Introducing Connie Lafortune, author of The Claiming of Callan

“This was my second time around with Outskirts Press and I would highly recommend them to all aspiring writers. They take care of all the difficult aspects of publishing and leave you time to create your next masterpiece…”

She loves spending time with her family and friends, taking walks along the beach and listening to music…If she’s not in her office, you can bet she has her nose buried in a book. Connie lives in Connecticut with her husband, Alan.

  1. I was curious about how you felt about what your goals were when you published with outskirts. Dog you feel like your book reached a lot of people. I’m a single mother of two girls under two, and I want to make writing my full time job. However I am afraid to take the leap

    1. Hi Michelle, I apologize for not getting in touch with you sooner. I just noticed your comment on the link.
      Since I had already published my first novel, Because of You with them I decided to do it again. They are true professionals and the experience was even better the second time around.
      Doing your own marketing is key to being a successful writer. You can’t expect to write a book and it will sell itself, it’s an ongoing process. I’m still promoting my first book and it was released in 2013.
      Never be afraid to take the leap, Michelle. If you love to write, do it! Just don’t go into it thinking it will be your career. Only a handful are fortunate enough to say they are full time authors. I myself still have a full time job and write in my spare time
